PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless So, The Wall Street Journal is reporting that Microsoft was very close to take over Nokia, but that the talks eventually broke down, probably beyond repair - at least for now. The reasons the talks broke down illustrate something that I have repeatedly tried to make clear for a long time now: Nokia isn't doing well.

Yes, professionals gave it better ratings than they gave to Apple product.

German press advised their german readers to go shopping to SWITZERLAND because Nokia refused to sell N9 in Germany.

That is success. And of course you WONT find any info about how N9 sold in Nokia info releases. But you will easily find Nokia CEO statements about NOT CONTINUING WITH N9 AND MEEGO **EVEN IF** ITS SUCCESSFUL.

Oh and MeeGo would run some of Symbian Apps, it would be big differentiation for Nokia, and Symbian partners would be able to jump in...

WinP was clean break.

Its impossible that WinP could outperform MeeGo in short term. Its just not possible. (And Nokia did not shared any info which by itself is indicative..)
